I stumbled upon an interview with Felicia “Snoop” Pearson from the Wire. If you thought the character Snoop was one tuff chick, you might be surprised to find out that Felicia had a life story that would make a perfect fit for the show. Alhough I find it hard to image how someone can find her a “total hottie”, as I’ve seen commented around the web, she’s sure an intruiging character. Growing up on the streets of Baltimore with drugs and violence, she is now on her way to superstardom as an actress (and soon to be rapper?).
Here’s a snippet from the article.
Born pre-maturely to drug-addicted, incarcerated parents, Snoop was raised by a Foster Grandmother. She was dealing drugs by age 12, and was imprisoned at age 14 for an eight-year bid. Snoop attained her G.E.D. and was released after serving six years. While she aspired to be a rapper, she didn’t necessarily have a major plan for her next moves.
Damn, I’ve had a good life… The interview continues:
